Charlie Moore “the Mad Fisherman” had several Boston-area athletes on his show, Charlie Moore Outdoors, including Boston Celtics legend, John Havlicek. John Havliek is passionate about fly fishing, as is his son, Chris Havlicek. Other athletes featured on Moore’s show included Jay Miller, Ray Allen and Pete Brock. Read the full story here.
John Havlicek will always be revered for his passion and stamina. He was nicknamed “Hondo” after John Wayne’s 1953 film. He never seemed to run out of energy, something even his opponents recognized! Matt Guokas was quoted saying, “I’d give my right arm to have his stamina.”
John Havlicek and his son, Chris Havlicek, share their love of sports. Basketball is obviously something both men care about, as John is an NBA legend and Chris played for UVA and professionally in Italy, but both father and son are also passionate about golf.
